to be objective, but it is not right. that is the real issue. why did the obama administration put an actor in a military role, then as the head of the agency evaluate the actions? i think we need a national debate about obama's troop escalation in afghanistan. it was a failure. obama is now committed to withdrawing in 2014. that is generally a good thing, but did we need the true escalation, how well did it work, should we do more? all of that cannot be addressed unless we have a national debate on the policy. am sure general petraeus' issues and other security issues were there, but that is really not the issue here. >> it is interesting. all of this takes place as roger bales is being questioned for the murder of 16 afghans. he is now at fort lewis-mcchord in washington state. >> that is another issue. i am from a military family. i really mind that the events in afghanistan are on stage. we know almost no media reporting on afghanistan. our guys are out there fighting, and if they get killed, it is on page 17. it is not right for a country to be at war unless it is committed to the war.
and the power to convene. we need president obama to convene the right people together and set the agenda, which includes when the agenda is done. so the andrews air force base example. you don't amount to-month-olds finished. can we get that done? quite frankly, what american businesses are doing, they are planning a contingency to hold capital expenditures and lay people off in the potential that we will have a recession. in the bubble in washington, we determined how to keep our friends on the right or left by how we behave, the american people are the ones who suffer because we are the ones who laid them off. because we know how to respond to this situation. >> the president has to do that. the president has to meet with the leaders of the congress, collectively and individually. without the press necessarily being in the room. he heads to set the agenda. he needs to, you know, talk about what needs to be done. next year is going to be a window of opportunity which we won't have for three years after that. we could have tax reform and we could have energy legislation. but we haven't even had

done it. should the house do it? >> the house should do it, but make sure they get the right framework in place. what president obama is really trying to do now is play russian roulette with the nation's fiscal health and essentially the republicans need to agree to that. but they need to get more compromise. the president said he wants to compromise, but he's shown no impetus to compromise because he said if he don't raise the rates on the top 2%, then it will go up for everyone. that's bunk and we all know it. what we can do is cap the deductions at $50,000 and get 80 pill onin revenue versus the other. >> rick: ryan, hold on. ryan. ryan. i was reading your talking points you provided to us before the interview today. it says the bush era tax cut force the world's wealth yeast are the things driving the debility. the president doesn't agree with that. the president on wednesday in his news conference said it's health care cost that is the single biggest driver of the debt. so again, i'm going to try to get you one more time to give me some specifics here when it comes to health care,

austerity. president obama got it right when he said that companies are awash with cash. what they are missing is enough customers out there to prompt demand and justify them spending more on plants and equipment. businesses need customers. they do not create jobs. austerity is the opposite of income creating sales. it reduces income. tax increases reduce income. spending cuts reduce income. both, i would argue, are the wrong medicine for the economy today. we have seen the effects of austerity. we do not want to follow, these countries over the cliff and gratuitously -- we do not want to follow these countries over the cliff gratuitously.

right. a large percentage of the income that barack obama wants to tax at the higher rate is small business income. the other part of it that the speaker didn't mention is the other big component of that income is investment income the money that the people put into the small businesses to create them in the first place. doug knows this very well that one of the big problems we have in the economy right now is businesses aren't inch investigating, they are not expand -lg your operations. can you think of a worst time to raise the tax rate on investment when investment went negative in the last quarter? if businesses are not investing they can't hire more workers and i agree with doug it could cause a ou double-dip recession. gregg: if you force higher income americans to pay more in taxes not through increasing their tax rates but rather closing the loopholes, deductions, credits and so on and so forth, that is still a net increase on that important sector. so how is that any more or less damaging to the economy? >> it's always bad to raise taxes. the economy common-sense is to kee

-called fiscal cliff is right smack in the middle of the agenda in washington, and as our cover story shows you, the president and congressional leaders have already staked out their positions. president obama called on house republicans to give certainty to middle class families by extending middle class tax cuts immediately, before they run out at the end of the year. "i've got the pen ready to sign the bill right away. i'm ready to do it." fairness in taxes proved a key issue during the campaign. extending a tax cut for the middle class now would effectively keep republicans from holding it hostage later in negotiations to extend all tax cuts, including those for the rich. "i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i'm not going to do that." earlier, house speaker john boehner told reporters that allowing tax cuts for the wealthy to expire at the end of the year would be harmful to the economy.
